Merritt Academy Bands Dominate Cedar Point

On Friday, May 18, 2018 the Merritt Academy Middle School Concert Band and the High School Wind Ensemble combined for a performance at the Cedar Point Music in the Parks Festival.
The Cedar Point Music in the Parks Festival is a "Nationally" recognized event in which ensembles from all over the United States and Canada participate for ratings from a panel of "Nationally" recognized music educators.
The Merritt Academy Combined 6th -12th Grade Concert Band performed our newly commissioned "Celtic Air and Dance No. 4" by Michael Sweeney and "Canto" by William Francis McBeth. We earned a "Superior" rating on both selections from the adjudicator panel.

The Merritt Academy Combined 6th -12th Grade Concert Band was awarded "First Place in Class" (Among bands performing from schools with a student population of no more than 750 students) and "First Place Overall"! (Among all the bands performing at the Cedar Point Music in the Parks Festival from our designated performance location)

What a year for the Merritt Academy Bands...Straight First Division ratings at MSBOA District Band and Orchestra Festival, Straight First Division ratings at MSBOA State Band and Orchestra Festival, and
now "First Place in Class" and "First Place Overall" in a "Nationally" recognized music festival...Go Mustangs!!!!!
